4:04 am
sitting by the taliban. doug is live in dc with the preview of what he's going to say today. doug? >> good morning. this is the romney campaign trying to set the agenda and be more aggressive, especially in the wake of the debate that a lot of people thought mitt romney won. look how close this race is getting. through four key swing states, all within the margin of error, little doubt as to why the romney campaign would choose this last one, virginia, to deliver this big foreign policy address today. romney is probably going to touch on the attack on the u.s. consulate in libya last month. he may get into the ongoing crisis in syria, iran's nuclear ambition u name it. there is also afghanistan with the war there now entering its 12th year and almost on cue, we're hearing from the taliban with new reports this morning that they are mocking u.s. foreign policy, saying u.s. and nato forces are preparing to flee afghanistan in disgrace. romney is expected to call the
4:05 am
withdrawal of u.s. force has politically timed retreat. >> for the last four years, we've had a foreign policy led by a president who believes the strength of his personality is going to get people to do the right things. well, we've seen fires burning in u.s. embassies around the world. we need the strength of american military, america's economy and america's principles if we're going to keep this world more safe and preserve liberty. [ cheers and applause ] >> the white house would obviously dispute that. we're going to hear a lot more talk about foreign policy in coming weeks and probably afghanistan. not just because of world events, but also because that last presidential debate is going to focus exclusively on foreign policy. steve, gretchen and peter. >> steve: indeed. doug l thank you. >> gretchen: now it's time to bring in donald trump on the heels of that foreign policy discussion. good morning to you, mr. trump. >> good morning. >> gretchen: so what do you think mitt romney has to do today, according to his schedulers, it's going to be
4:06 am
seven points around libya, egypt, israel, free trade and others. >> look, our foreign policy is a total disgrace, i guess you would have to say it's a joke. it's so bad, it's so out of control, nobody has ever seen anything like this. everything that we've touched has turned to garbage. look at egypt, look at libya, you look at iraq where iran is flying the airplanes to supply syria. going right over the middle of i. probably using their airports. we've spent trillions of dollars and thousands of lives and we're being scoffed at and laughed at over there. we have no foreign policy. this has been the worst foreign policy president in the history of the country without question. >> steve: you know what, donald, it does appear to some that this president has really been an innovator because now we are leading from behind. >> well, yes, if you call that innovation. look, everything -- we shouldn't have gone it -- who were we backing? when webels who by the way killed our am basses and
4:07 am
other great americans, when we backed the rebels, who were we backing? what did we get out of it? nothing. we didn't get oil. we should have. we should have taken the oil. we didn't get oil. what did we get out of it? who did get the oil after we suspense all of the money, et cetera? guess what? china. because china gets their oil from libya. we don't get the oil from libya. what are we doing? our foreign policy is a total disaster. >> pete: you've been talking about this for a few years. look -- >> i've been talk being it before, peter. by the way, on a lighter note, could i tell you this? peter has represented me legally in the past. he's a great lawyer. >> proud to. >> he is a great lawyer. i have to tell you that, peter. adequate case for me and he won. he brought it out of nowhere. so i just have to say that it's only good for his ego. okay. let's get back. enough with peter. >> pete: what about iran? we're in the dumper in iran. we have these economic
4:08 am
sanctions. they go on and on. what do they mean? what should mitt romney be saying about iran? what should the united states be doing? >> iran does not respect us, and yet, i find it hard to believe, because we are so powerful potentially, if we rebuild our military, et cetera, et cetera, we could do it quickly, that we have all the cards. i can't believe we can't do something with iran without even having to use the military. if you have to use it, you have to use it. but we -- when you make a deal, you start off with 50, 60. we should get 100% of everything we want. i can't believe these people are going to be able to negotiate anything, if you want to know the truth. now, it will be very interesting, i have been predicting for a long time, i've made a lot of accurate predictions. i've been predicting that in order to maybe get his poll numbers up, this guy would go in to iran and my opinion, that's the only way he's going to win the election. i've been saying that for a long time and now he's doing badly.
4:09 am
he's been exposed. >> pete: october surprise. >> i'm spell teling you, he was badly exposed in that debate. lot of bad things happened to him. people are saying who was that up there? i've been saying for a long time he may do that and it's not the right thing to do at this moment. >> gretchen: on the flip side of that, he did get some good news, at least if you just look at the number on friday, which was the unemployment rate dropped from 8.1% to 7.8%. some people are asking what the real unemployment number is, so the latest unemployment 7.8, but the real unemployment number, if you break down the 23.2 million, 12 million people unproposed, 2.5 million stopped work. 22 million americans. do you believe that number? some other ceo's said they don't believe the number. >> believe the number and neither do any of the other people that have intelligence because that number came out of
4:10 am
nowhere. everyone was expecting 8.2. the 8.2 is not a real number either. it's between 16 and 21%. if you're looking for a job, and you give up, you no longer are in that number. they take you out. in other words, that's a big success for our country, right? the number is 16 to 21%, the real number. even 23 million -- >> pete: people that have given up? >> they give up. and they say, oh, they're no longer unemployed. this is so crazy. now, everybody, everybody was saying, the economists, everybody, that it's going to be 8-point #, 8-point -- 8.2 or 8.2. when this number came out, you saw a lot of crazy things happening. they have didn't want to do a lot of different things because this is the final number before the election. they wanted this number to be as good as possible. what's going to happen is it's going to be readjusted. you know, they readjust these numbers all the time the good news is it will be readjusted. the bad news it will be readjusted after the election.
4:11 am
and it's going to be a horrible number. wait 'til you see what the re-- they coo it all the time. wait 'til you see how bad the readjustment number is. but by that time, it's too late. if this particular president gets reelected. >> steve: the number we used, 14.7, comes to us from bureau of labor statistics. gretchen mentioned ceo's where ours come from, the underemployment number. jack welch took a look at these numbers. remember, thereof a surge in employment like we haven't seen in 30 years that was announced on friday. jack welch says, unbelievable jobs numbers. these chicago guys will do anything, can't debate, so change numbers. do you think they changed the numbers? >> i do. i do. and i think that they did a lot of those -- a lot of monkey business. i'm telling you n a month and a half from now, they will do a readjustment like has been happening for the last year and a half. they will do a readjustment and the number will be 8.2 or more. again, the 8.2, it's not a real number because people that are
4:12 am
out of work aren't considered unemployed. >> steve: we get that. but if you're making the allegation that this administration is monkeying with the numbers to make them look good, that is very damning. >> everyone knows he didn't want to lay off certain workers in certain categories and that's been well documented and well reported that he didn't want to lay off certain workers in certain categories until after the election. i mean, that's monkeying with the numbers. >> pete: my concern is if the numbers were greater, if there was greater job growth the month before and less this month and then the number drops, how can the number be working? the final question i have for you is people that watch the apprentice, including me and my family, they know that you hate sore losers. is the president a sore loser on this debate? how many excuses can we hear? >> i think it was a very embarrassing moment. i'm not blaming him one way or the other. i think his people are getting very nasty about it. now they're starting to say all sorts of things why it took place. but it's hard to lose. and it's hard to look that bad.
4:13 am
he really looked bad. that wasn't like a debate where you could have a question because i've seen many, many debates, hugely -- one like this, there is really a debate. this was a case where even his ardent supporters said what happened? that was a romp and frankly, i think he's having a very hard time. now i'm just looking at your poll numbers that you just put up and the poll numbers are looking awfully good for mitt romney. i think mitt romney will make a great president. >> gretchen: we'll have to see what happens. the vp debate thursday night. thank you very much. coming up, hollywood practically begging politicians to raise tax and at the same time, taking tax cuts? doesn't seem fair, does it. stuart varney up next. >> pete: nascar champ cause ago massive pileup. see this and believe it [ male announcer ] inside the v8 taste lab.

>> steve: hypocrisy alert. hollywood campaigns hard for observe and backs his plan to raise taxes on the rich, behind closed doors, those same high paid studio executives are actually begging for, wait for it -- tax breaks. here to give us the scoop, stuart varney. >> i can't spell hypocrisy, but i know when i see it. this is just absolutely blatant hypocrisy. if you make a movie in california, you get to pay lower taxes. the hollywood studios pay lower taxes. if they make a movie in california. >> steve: why? >> they get a tax credit. they make a movie here, 25 cents of every dollar you spend is a tax credit. you pay lower taxes. if, however, you are just a regular person in california,
4:18 am
hollywood wants you to pay more in taxes. they support governor brown who suppose has whopping tax increase for everybody in california. so that's the hypocrisy. hollywood wants a tax break for them, but maneuvers to get higher taxes for everybody else in the state of california. >> steve: i got a news flash for jerry brown, his state is broke. >> yes, it is. >> steve: so for them to extend these tax breaks, and it would be essentially a tax credit on your state taxes that the movie companies would enjoy, this is not the time to be giving rich guys big fat tax breaks. >> by the way, 12 other states which used to offer the same kind of tax breaks to movie companies, come make a movie in my state, they've withdrawn on limited those because they have run out of money. california has run out of money, but they say keep that gravy train rolling for the hollywood people who like us. >> steve: and i'm sure it is just a coincidence, but it seems
4:19 am
to me the president of the under the circumstances us within the last 12 hours or so was at the home of a big time movie producer, jeffrey katzenberg who would benefit from this. >> yes, he would. not to mention the convert jon von jovi gave, 6,000 attended. the wolf gang puck restaurant, 150 people attended the fund-raiser for president obama. $125,000 each. so hollywood is giving money to people who would raise taxes, president obama and governor brown, but lobby for a tax themselves within the state of california. i can't spell it, but i know it and it's called hypocrisy. >> steve: don't you think when the president goes to these events and sitting with the millionaires and billionaire, they go, we get what you're saying, but you don't really mean that. you don't want to raise our taxes, do you? >> i don't know what is said between the president and the big guys in hollywood. that's supposed to remain secret, i suppose.

4:47 am
attacks. >> pete: what is this alarming increase of insider attacks mean for our troops overseas? chief of staff, the united states army, general ray joins us now. happy columbus day. tell us about these attacks. there have been misconception that the pairing up has stopped. these patrols continue with both forces. tell us about that. >> actually, it's to turn more and more afghan forces and in order to do that, we start out by partnering and teaming with them. that's continued actually at a significant pace. i was there two weeks ago and i had a chance to see firsthand the great work that's going on between the army and afghans. what i worry about, about the insider threat, is i try to remind everybody, this is a new tactic. the taliban is desperate. they try to come up with new tactics as they see themselves losing ground. the most important thing is you have to remember is there is hundreds of thousands of afghan
4:48 am
soldiers and police. this is a very, very, very small number. we can't sacrifice what we're trying to do over there because of these small numbers who is trying to is that steamiccally change what's going on in afghanistan. >> steve: general, i understand what you're doing now is our side is doing a better job at vetting who to let in. >> yeah. we're working with the afghans. so there is two things we're doing. on the u.s. side, we're training or coming up with new technique, awareness and other things so our soldiers are more aware of this potential threat. but the key is working with the afghan government, the afghan army to help us to vet and identify and they are working very hard and we are sending additional help with them and they are work hard to vet these individuals. >> gretchen: i find it interesting that both of the presidential candidates seem to agree at least on this time line now of leaving afghanistan of 2014. where do you fall on this? >> i think as i see us going forward, that's two years from now. as i've told everybody, that's a
4:49 am
very long time when you're in a country trying to do what we do. i think we can get a lot done. there comes a time when we have to turn this over to the afghans. what it can't be in 14 as we abandon afghanistan. that's not the policy. so what we have to do is turn over responsibility to them, continue to support them. we'll continue probably to have assistance in training after 2014. that's still to be determined. but so i think it is the right policy. i will tell you the most important piece will be the follow along piece and what we do post 2014. the texas a & m tries to use this -- the taliban tries to use this as -- they say the nato is leaving in 014, u.s. is leaving in 2014, they try it use that as a propaganda tool. that's why it's so important for us to make sure the afghans are ready to stand up against these individuals and more importantly, we follow through post 2014. >> steve: it's serious stuff. today you'll be part of the columbus day parade in new york city.
4:50 am
>> pete: congratulations in being an honoree, great italian americans. >> it's a great honor. this is about honoring your italian american history. what's amazing to me is the strength. when i talked, i talked about the medal of hon or winners and the long history of service and, you know, italian americans now becoming part of this country, but still being proud of your heritage. america is about diversity. that's the strength of our country. it's a great, great thing. >> gretchen: have a great time in the parade. from to see you. >> thank you. always a pleasure. >> steve: next up, don't buy the spin. real number of americans who don't have a job way higher than 7.8% that they announced on friday. governor mike huckabee here to explain. >> gretchen: this day in history, today in 1957, the number one song was "wake up little susie" by the everly brothers.

4:54 am
>> gretchen: welcome back. with the unemployment rate dropping to 7.8%, many of the president's supporters are cheering. >> steve: but his opponents say not so fast. there are still millions of americans out of work. gas prices are going up, and the entitlement problem has not been addressed. joining us now is the host of huckabee, governor mike huckabee right there in santa rosa beach, down in florida, south of 30 a. good morning to you, governor. >> good morning, steve, gretchen, great to be with you today. >> steve: we've been throwing out these numbers. the government came out and said unemployment now 7.8%. when you look at the real unemployment number, all those who are unemployed, stopped looking or have taken part-time
4:55 am
job, you're talking about tens of millions of people and for them, the unemployment or underemployment problem is 100%! >> you know, when people hear the numbers, if i was obama, i would be out touting the percentage. what he's not going to be talking about is the fact there is over 580,000 people whose jobs last month were added as part-time. lot of americans are barely work. they're work. they've got a job, but it's nothing like the job they held two, four, six years ago and as a result, i think people vote not so much based on what the economists put on paper. they vote based on what they look down and see their paycheck every week and they know it's significantly less than it used to be. >> gretchen: up with of the things that -- one of the things that has been a personal thing i've talked a lot about because i don't understand why there is not more coverage about it are gas prices. i know this is something you talk about as well. if you look at 2009 compared to today n 2009, 1.84.
4:56 am
today, 3.81. we reported in california it was well over 4, maybe 4 1/2 bucks. >> steve: one stakes, 6 bucks. >> gretchen: so why are we not hearing about this? obviously this affects americans every single day. >> you know, when george bush was president, we heard about gas prices every time and they would take cameras to the pumps and have someone tearfully explaining they were paying almost 2.50 a gallon. it's amazing how quiet the media has been when gas prices are double what they were when president obama took office. the highest in the country's history. and in california, there are some places where gas is 6 bucks a gallon. the reason? because in california, the regulations and the taxes make it even more expensive and they can't bring gas across the borders because of the high standards that california has for gasoline. so when that hits people, it hits them hard. it takes that single mom trying to get to work, dropping her kids off at daycare, that's a gut punch to americans that i think they'll remember on
4:57 am
election day. >> steve: we'll have to find out. mike huckabee joining us from santa rosa beach, down there, we hear the dog barking. you better go walk him. thank you. >> thanks. >> gretchen: coming up, the u.s. contributions from foreign country, why is the obama administration m still doing it? , even the smallest things became difficult. i finally understood what serious joint pain is like. i talked to my rheumatologist and he prescribed enbrel. enbrel can help relieve pain, stiffness, and stop joint damage. because enbrel, etanercept, suppresses your immune system, it may lower your ability to fight infections. serious, sometimes fatal events including infections, tuberculosis, lymphoma, other cancers, and nervous system and blood disorders have occurred. before starting enbrel, your doctor should test you for tuberculosis and discuss whether you've been to a region where certain fungal infections are common. don't start enbrel if you have an infection like the flu. tell your doctor if you're prone to infections, have cuts or sores, have had hepatitis b,

5:02 am
the president has dealt with israel and iran. in a preview of his prepared remarks, he says, quote, i believe the leader of the free world has a duty to use america's great influence wisely with some let mity and without false pride, but also firmly and actively to shape events in ways that secure our interests further values, prevent conflicts and make the world better. the outbreak of the rare strain of meningitis growing and only expected to get worse. 27 more cases of people getting sick just confirmed. that brings the total number of cases to 91 across nine states. seven people have died. the cdc linking it to those tainted shots used to treat back pain. the company in massachusetts that produced those shots now expanding a recall to all of their products, including acetaminophen, vitamin k supplements and others. new developments in the case of missing jessica ridgeway. police in colorado believe they found the ten-year-old's backpack inside a water bottle with her name on it on friday.
5:03 am
she was heading three blocks to meet friends for the walk to school, something she did every day. this time she never got there. her grandmother who lives in missouri, spoke to reporters. >> it's real hard being where we can't be there with the rest of her family and participate in a door to door search if we needed to. >> gretchen: police say jessica's father, who also lives in missouri, is fighting for custody of his daughter, but he's not being named as a person of interest. check out what happened while you were sleeping. >> three, two, one. and lift-off. lift-off of the space x falcon rocket launching dragon to the international space station and returning cargo resupply missions. >> gretchen: space x dragon blasted off, the commercial capsule is carrying supplies to the international space station. this is the first of a dozen supply runs for the private
5:04 am
company which has a $1.6 billion contract with nasa. there is also a personal touch on board. chocolate vanilla swirl ice cream for the station's three residents. they'll be look forward to that. >> steve: they better hurry. good morning to you, dana perino. >> hi. >> steve: we haven't talked to you since the big debate debauchle for the president 6789 it's interesting the "new york times" today talks a little bit about how ten minutes before the end of the debate, while it was still going on, they were having a conference call and said, let's throw away our current strategy. from now on, we're going after mitt romney. he is a big fat liar about all sorts of stuff. we want you to watch this clip. robert gibbs from yesterday talking about how not only is mitt romney a liar, but paul ryan is a liar and this is even before the debate. >> a week ago, paul ryan was asked to explain the math of a $4.8 trillion tax cut. you know what he said? i don't have time. governor romney had a masterful, theatrical performance just this past week, but the underpinnings
5:05 am
and foundation of that performance were fundamentally dishonest. if you're willing to say anything to get elected president, if you're willing to make up your positions and walk away from them, i think the american people have to understand how can they trust you if you are elected president? >> steve: yeah, let's look ahead to the vice presidential debate. >> gretchen: what do you make of the fact that they came up with this strategy that they're liars? >> it's just nothing that i would ever have done. unless you truly believe it. the problem -- remember charles krauthammer last week after the debate said that in five minutes, mitt romney turned to dust, $150 million worth of negative advertising, the obama campaign spent for six months saying mitt romney was this terrible person. he didn't like people. he wasn't concerned about the country. he only cared about himself. then people see him at the debate and people like my sister say, well, that's not the guy that they said he was. and then instead of just the next day of obama contain saying -- campaign saying, not
5:06 am
the best performance, but we got good points made. wait 'til the next one. instead, they spent seven days saying that mitt romney is a liar, something that is not sticking. they sound a little desperate. then they preaccuse ryan of being a liar. next thing you know, they're going to call him ugly and say their mama wears combat boots or something. their point about the $5 trillion tax cut turns to dust when you look at the actual facts. the tax policies foundation that put together the -- everything they're basing this they lied to the american people trial is taken apart very effectively by the romney campaign, but certainly also by others outside, including the man who wrote about it on national review this weekend. >> steve: a couple days ago, stephanie cutter had to admit, okay. we're kind -- >> stipulated was the word. >> steve: that's exactly right. but one of the things the president has going for him is the likeability. and now with the shrillness and it's like that guy is a liar --
5:07 am
>> see, also i'm so glad you brought that up. the ads that they've been running for six months did not match president obama who didn't do the same at the debate. and then i thought that president obama was great last night. if you can figure out a way to poke a little fun at yourself, they would have forgiven him in an instant. instead, they first blamed jim lehrer, then nobody could just say, it wasn't the president's best debate. but not -- they're overwrought with anxiety about it and overcorrecting. so let's hear -- >> gretchen: let's hear the president when he made joke about himself last night. >> i've got to admit that even though my staff all came over early to get the show, i got left behind. but my understanding is that incredible show. [ laughter ] and everybody here is incredible professionals, they're such great friends and they just perform flawlessly night after
5:08 am
night. i can't always say the same. [ laughter ] >> see that little chuckle? that's what you're looking for. chicago politics that some people brand kind of the gibb's attack and some of the other awe tacks where you accuse someone of being a liar action not telling the truth, making up the facts, how will the romney campaign respond to that, because if you're being attacked in that way, it's obviously disturbing. but sometimes you feel powerless on it. how do you get your message across to the american people that people are making stuff up about you that's not true? >> great question. once you respond to a bully, they know that they've won.
5:09 am
so the liar tactic is to try to get to them so that mitt romney is provoked into responding rather than just staying on message, this is what i want to do for the economy. and just continuing on that because that's actually working for the romney campaign. >> pete: if you're advising mitt romney, you say, blow off that nonsense. >> slight. >> pete: move on with your message. you're on a track. >> and if vice president biden this thursday or if next week, next tuesday when the president and mitt romney meet again, if president obama were to try to do that because, look, he's being pushed from the left now and they're all giving him advice. be tougher, be mean, go after him, we've given you the playbooks why don't you run the play, mr. president? if he does that, then romney would probably be able to have an effective way to deflect it. >> steve: it does sound, according to the "new york times" and they would know, what they're talking about is they're really intend to go kind of reset things with the joe
5:10 am
biden-paul ryan debate. in fact, it says that apparently joe biden has been reading the paul ryan book about the young guns and so he's getting paul ryan in his head. at the same time, you got paul ryan who says he fully expects joe biden to come at him like, quote, a cannon ball. >> that's a good way to prepare. vice president biden going to be off the campaign trail for six days leading up to it, which i think is very smart because almost every day when he's on the trail, you get some sort of great gaffe sound bite and they don't want that as a distraction going into the debate. so biden will be off the trail. there are some similarities between the two. they're both catholic, they're both middle class. both suffered tragedy in their lives. ryan losing his father early and biden losing his wife and son. and they've also spent their entire careers in washington. they actually understand the facts and figures in a way -- >> gretchen: speaking of facts p figure, the university of colorado updated election forecasting model still pointing
5:11 am
out they believe mitt romney will win. they did this back on august 22. they had him winning a majority of the electoral college votes. you need 270. now in the latest one, he's gained five more points. do you look at this and do you agree with it? >> the university of colorado statistical poll they've done, it's been right almost every time. >> pete: since 1980. >> pretty good track record. but you can not find a democrat who will agree with you on the path that romney could get to 270 electoral votes. bob beckel on "the five," he always is like, it is not possible. he'll walk through the map with me. last week i showed the "wall street journal" interactive map. if you use the colorado model, and you plug those in, then romney does have a way to get there. but i think going into this, after the debate, it will just be a dead heat tie all the way through election day. >> steve: the important to vote. vote early, vote often as they do in chicago. >> that's another topic.
5:12 am
>> steve: it is another topic. dana perino, we'll be watching today at the fife with the four other people. >> good people. >> gretchen: have a great day. >> gretchen: coming up, people in ho had already voting early. so what does that mean for president obama who is falling behind in one of that swing state's polls? ohio's attorney general is here next. >> pete: then he's taken some serious leaps of faith before. but this guy known as fearless felix is about to live up to his name. he's preparing to do what no one, no one has ever done before follow the wings.

>> pete: early voting in ohio began october 2. despite governor romney's debate win on wednesday, president
5:16 am
obama now leading not so much. dwindled to one point. what does this mean for mitt romney and his chances of winning this vital swing state? joining me now is ohio state's attorney general mike demine. good morning, how are you? >> i'm well, thank you very much. >> pete: we've seen the rasmussen poll that the president is at 50% and governor romney is at 49%. so it's a dead heat. what is happening and what's happening with early voting? how many people will be casting early votes in that state? >> well, the debate that occurred this past wednesday was a game changer in ohio. fundamentally changed what was going on. the polls have been showing the president ahead. this is a dead heat race. it's going to go right down to the wire. romney is going to win. he's going to win, i think, because really as people look at this, people i talk to in ohio, uncommitted voters, not really happy with what the president has done, but going into the
5:17 am
debate, i don't think they had really seen enough of governor romney. i don't think they've had the opportunity to look at him in a long debate. when they saw it, they liked what they saw. the president had a very difficult time during that debate and you know, i think some of the commentators are saying he had an off night. i think part of the problem is he's got a position, he's got a record that's hard to defend. people are not happy with where we are in regard to foreign policy. they're not happy with where we are in regard to job creation in this country. it's very, very difficult frankly, to defend that. >> pete: let's talk about the defense and let's look at ho o. some of the president's people are saying that he's responsible for ohio's economic turn around, increase in employment in that state. who is responsible? is the president responsible or is governor kasich and some you folks for some of the policies you put in?
5:18 am
>> well, the majority of people in ohio and the polls that i have looked at and just from talking to people clearly believe that governor kasich is responsible. he came into office with an $8 billion shortfall, 78 cents in the rainy day fund, and he's fundamentally turned it around. he's doing what governor romney will do if president, lower taxes, balance the budget, less regulation. the basic formula for job creation and what people saw the other night was governor romney, a man who is confident in his plan, who has a plan, and who wants to lead this country forward. and so the majority of people who i talked to in ho had is backed up by the polls think john kasich is responsible for that; not the president. >> pete: attorney general, we'll leave it there and let us know as things go on in ohio. keep us up to date.
5:19 am
we appreciate it and thank you for your service. >> thank you. >> pete: think terror training camps are only located in places like pakistan? think again. our next guest has proof that radical muslims are train to go wage jihad right here in our own backyard. and we've seen a lot of nascar crashes. but this one is unbelievable. what triggered this massive pileup ahead. look at that [ male announcer ] how do you make america's favorite recipes?

5:24 am
trying to see how many of these camps exist under our noses? >> we had been riding -- writing issues with radical islam and a f.b.i. act said do you understand you have a terrorist compound of islamic muslim training about 30 miles from your office, so you better be careful with what you're doing. that's how we became interested. >> steve: i understand a guy who was recruited out of prison to -- and wound up living with the people at the terror training camps who was working with the nypd, came up to you and he goes, look, i got to tell you the story because if people knew what was going on here, they'd be horrified. >> yeah. most people have never heard of it in the united states, a very foreign name. but almost everybody heard of "wall street journal," daniel pearl. and daniel pearl was on his way to investigate the leader of these compounds in america when he was kidnapped and beheaded and dismembered. this book and what ali has to say pretty much tells the rest
5:25 am
of daniel pearl's investigation. they've been here over three decades; that they have committed assassinations and murders and kidnapping, that they're involved in gun running and drug running, that their whole goal is purify islam through it. what ali said is more shock. he spent eight years inside of these terror camps as an undercover agent fort nypd. he basically told me the three m's. that is still engaging in murder, and that they still do military training, jihaddist training to strike and attack such objects as water treatment plants, nuclear power facilities and that he calls them modern warrior slaves. very frightening stuff what he had to say. >> gretchen: i want to look at a map. these are the 17 camps that fox news has been able to confirm through our brain room. you can see that the majority of them are throughout the southeast and northeast corridor. do law enforcement officials know about all of these and are

they monitoring them and watching them? >> there is a loft different law enforcement agencies involved here. most of these camps are in rural america. so they're in the back yards of america with very, very small police departments. in hancock, new york, for instance, the entire police department is made up of just five officers to watch this 80-acre compound that headquarters that camp. >> steve: we just showed the map that shows 17. those are the ones we've been able to confirm. you say there are a lot more out there. we just showed some video. what are they doing at these camps? >> according to ali, they're training for jihad against america. >> steve: to kill people? >> to kill people. >> steve: this looks like one of those taliban or one of the al-qaeda training camps that we saw ten years ago. >> he said, you have to understand this: these people start at the age of 17 on these compounds with one goal and that is to wage a holy war against a mecca. they said they are proud to be
5:27 am
gangsters. >> steve: these are americans, right? >> all of these are american, yes indeed. >> gretchen: where are they recruiting people it come to these camps? >> a lot are recruited out of prison. the really important ones, the ones sent to pakistan, military compounds, then sent back to the american camps to further the training of the people that live in the united states. >> steve: i got a feeling after we put up that map with all the camps in the eastern third of the united states, you'll sell a bunch of books in those areas so people know what's going on. we thank you for joining us. >> thank you very much. >> steve: thanks for the research. >> gretchen: coming up, u.s. banned campaign contributions from foreign countries. so why is the obama administration actively soliciting money from those foreign nations and foreigners in general? is it legal? the stunning new report coming up next. >> steve: it was supposed to be the happiest days of their lives. because massive brawl breaks out between two, yes, two wedding receptions. not good
5:28 am
bob, these projections... they're... optimistic. productivity up, costs down, time to market reduced... those are good things. upstairs, they will see fantasy. not fantasy... logistics. ups came in, analyzed our supply chain, inventory systems... ups? ups. not fantas who would have thought? i did. we did, bob. we did. got it.

[ male announcer ] make the switch. take action. take advil®. and if pain keeps you up, sleep better with advil® pm. >> hey! good looking.
5:32 am
♪ what you got cook ♪ how is about cook something up with me ♪ ♪ . >> steve: time for shot of the morning. paul ryan celebrating columbus day by taking a break from the campaign trail. he joins husband wife and kids at the apple holler pumpkin patch to pick pumpkins. he also went to the italian american society annual columbus day dinner yesterday. the day before it's an event that's close to his heart. ryan has only missed it once in 14 years and that was to attend a lamaze class with his wife. if he would not have gone to the lamaze class, he might not be going to the event. >> gretchen: to help his wife know how to breathe when giving birth. >> pete: the kids are young, those are great. >> steve: they are. >> gretchen: i look forward to it every year. let's talk about this: could it be that america is now the vulnerable -- could it be foreign and fraudulent on-line campaign contributions are influencing the u.s. election? on its face it's illegal.
5:33 am
if you're a foreign, you're not supposed to contribute on-line to a presidential campaign without disclosing all pieces of information. it turns out that the obama campaign apparently has a couple loopholes in its on-line sites that it's allowing that to happen. >> steve: yeah. this is a brand-new report out, a blockbuster this morning from the government accountability institute. what they found among other things, is that with barak obama's main web site, apparently 43% of the traffic to the main web site is from foreign sources. what's troubling about this, and the reason for this, is they simple -- also a loft congressional offices don't have the simple security, the same kind of security you would have at a restaurant or mitt romney's sites apparently did have it. but the president's sites do not. >> pete: what's disturbing and i think it requires a lot of closer scrutiny is that it's directed to the giving page. not to the informational pages
5:34 am
of the obama web site. it's directed from the foreign folks, go right to the giving pages. so now we have this under federal law that under $200, you don't have to disclose what those contributions are. we know that there have been millions of contributions to the obama campaign and they crow about how small they are. we'll never know who the folks are and as the government account accountability points out, perhaps they are foreign contributions. i watched your segment, it's not only a crime to accept foreign contributions, people who are not foreign citizens, it's a crime to solicit those contributions. >> steve: sure. >> gretchen: the gai, along with another guest on earlier, he starts out by telling us what to look for on the credit card. >> the obama campaign is the most aggressive and most successful of on-line fundraising and they are on a
5:35 am
regular basis are submitting contributions or asking for contributions from people around the world, at the same time they have a basic lack of security on the back end. the ftc has currently no security requirements whatsoever. the security code on a credit card, i actually brought a prop. the american express, it's a digit right here that you have to input if you go amazon. this is basic antifraud tool that literally, you have federal candidates not using, which means fraudulent donations are much more likely to be getting in. the worry is that there is a long history of foreign governments and foreign individuals wanting to influence our elections. >> steve: so just exactly where are these internationals from who are accessing the web site? according to the fellows who dropped by the curvy couch, a lot are from europe, many from asia, india, the gulf states around the mideast, and at least 10% from china. >> pete: they indicated that the obama campaign doesn't ask for the security number that you are called for when you call ticket
5:36 am
master or zappos or amazon. they just say okay. >> steve: we'll take your money. we need the money. >> pete: interesting. now the rest evidence headlines. leadership in libya crumbenning after they oust the prime minister. four months ago, they hand picked him to be prime minister. libya's government also lacks ministers of defense and interior. those are the officials who would be responsible for catching the murderers of four americans, including u.s. ambassador chris stevens. >> gretchen: it could determine which party controls the senate. democrat chris murphy turning the first connecticut senate race debate into a slug fest. but republican linda mcmahon not backing down. watch this. >> i know she made her living making up stories in the wrestling ring, but it's not okay to make them up when you're running for the united states senate. my plan to create jobs in the state is rooted in the work i've done in public service and that's based in focusing tax cuts on the middle class. >> my plan starts with a tax cut
5:37 am
for the middle class. it reduces taxes on businesses. it rolls back, overburdens regulations. it cuts spending. one penny out of every dollar it focuses on education to make sure that we are educating and empowering our work force. >> gretchen: the winner will replace retiring independent senator in connecticut, joe lieberman. >> steve: a day of joy turns into a day of tragedy after a wedding reception in the philly area erupt noose a deadly brawl. cops say guests from two different wedding receptions were partying at the hotel bar and then at some point, somebody threw a fist and they started fighting. a 57-year-old man died from a heart attack during the fight. he's believed to be the uncle of one of the brides. she is seen there running through the parking lot in her wedding dress. three people are facing charges for the fight.
5:38 am
>> pete: sad. and they don't call him fearless felix for nothing.tomorrow felis set to sky dive from 23 miles up. 120,000 feet above the earth. he will be flying faster than the speed of sound. his body will go from 0, steve, to 690 miles per hour in 34 seconds. gretchen. he will be supersonic for one minute. if he succeed, his jump will be the highest, fastest free fall in history. >> steve: how reliable is that chute? >> it better be. >> gretchen: he's hoping 100%. >> pete: you don't need to have red bull, but i guess it helps afterwards. >> gretchen: gas prices hitting record highs in go california, twice overt weekend. the average price 4.65 a gallon. our reporter with fox 11 in los angeles joins us live from west los angeles. what's up with those prices?
5:39 am
>> who knows? i'm one of those that's kind of driving an empty tank of gas confined of waiting to see where prices will go and hopefully down. we did see a record weekend here in california, certainly in southern california with prices going up every day over the weekend hitting record after record after record. as you said, we're up to about 4.66 a gallon as of today and certainly if you drive around l.a., i can tell you you can easily find it reach if not breaking, the $5 a gallon mark. there is apparently some relief in sight. the california governor, jerry brown, just yesterday is asking the california air resources board to allow oil companies now to sell the winter grade gasoline, the release date was mandated october 31. but he's saying let's go ahead and release that earlier. it will have a negligible effect on the environment and hopefully the supply situation. also refineries here, some going back on-line, helping -- they're getting repaired. so we should see relief sometime
5:40 am
soon. most experts say we'll see that relief coming slow, that we haven't reached the peak as of yet. but over the next couple of weeks, perhaps by thanksgiving, we could see prices on the decline. but for now, looks like we might be dealing with pry high prices here. >> steve: how many refineries are off line right now, causing the spike? >> there are a number of big ones. one in northern california where there was a fire last -- we only have 14 refineries here in california. so if you have just a couple, like five of them off line, then we could see certainly a spike here in the gas. the real big issue is that regulation, the california regulation that wouldn't allow any of these oil companies to release that winter blend. so now that they can release the winter blend, we could see relief. >> gretchen: thanks very much for that update. coming up, the way president obama won the election the first time may have made it impossible for him to do it the second
5:41 am
time? we'll palestinian that next. >> pete: then they're an american institution, but greeting cards are quickly becoming a thing of the past. the story next. we talked about that. we don't like that. >> gretchen: go buy a card [ rosa ] i'm rosa and i quit smoking with chantix.
5:42 am
5:43 am
when the doctor told me that i could smoke for the first week... i'm like...yeah, ok... little did i know that one week later i wasn't smoking. [ male announcer ] along with support, chantix is proven to help people quit smoking. it reduces the urge to smoke. some people had changes in behavior, thinking or mood, hostility, agitation, depressed mood and suicidal thoughts or actions while taking or after stopping chantix. if you notice any of these stop taking chantix and call your doctor right away. tell your doctor about any history of depression or other mental health problems, which could get worse while taking chantix. don't take chantix if you've had a serus allergic
5:44 am
or skin reaction to it. if you develop these stop taking chantix and see your doctor right away as some can be life-threatening. if you have a history of heart or blood vessel problems, tell your doctor if you have new or worse symptoms. get medical help right away if you have symptoms of a heart attack. use caution when driving or operating machinery. common side effects include nausea, trouble sleeping and unusual dreams. it helps to have people around you... they say, you're much bigger than this. and you are. [ male announcer ] ask your doctor if chantix is right for you. >> gretchen: quick headlines now. when was the last time that you got a card in the mail? thanks to facebook and e cards, sales have fallen from 6 billion to 35 billion in the last decade. hallmark announcing it's closing a plant in kansas as a result that made one third of the cards. 300 people will lose their jobs. that is a sad thing. and ben affleck hits are usually on the screen, not the streets. he was driving in santa monica, california when he sideswipe add parked car.
5:45 am
he left a note saying hi, knocked off your mirror. very sorry. will cover everything. ben. he also included his contact information on the note. guys? >> pete: thanks. the way president obama won the election the first time may make it impossible for him to do it a second time. our next guest says this taffy duck trick explains it all. >> appear ordinary match, girl, you better hold on to your boyfriends. swallow the match. that's terrific! daffy, they loved it! they want more! >> i know, i know. but i can only do it once. >> steve: that's the key, he can only do it once. new york post columnist and commentator magazine ed terror john wrote about this yesterday. 'tis his column. it was a great one. that's what happened in 2008, the president of the united states made it very clear what he was going to do, he didn't
5:46 am
deliver. he could apparently do it one time. >> you can try hope and change, but then when you run again, you have to run on results. so the problem is what he did at the democratic convention was basically say have a little more hope. give me a little more time. maybe i can change it again. i don't really think that that is a successful pitch. either you do what you say you were going to do or you don't. the problem also is that he didn't -- wasn't very specific in 2008 and he basically -- he wasn't specifically and he was also very messianic. he said today when i win the primaries, this will be the daytona 500 that will be remembered when the oceans began to recede and the earth's temperature began to drop and -- >> steve: who can fulfill that? >> pete: it's new level of absurdity. you penned a great picture that the president has no clothes. as of this time, he kind of stands naked even before his supporters based on what happened in that debate. >> right. i think what's really
5:47 am
interesting is how distraught people who were great supporters of him have been in the wake of the debate as though they did not -- have not watched as this presidency unfoaled. the interesting thing as -- is how ineffective he has been on selling his speeches. three fifths of the country opposes obamacare two years after its passage. that indicates the great orator did not have persuading skills as president to bring the country -- >> pete: it shouldn't have been a surprise in some ways? >> i don't think it should have been a vies to his supporters. but people want to believe, people who voted for him want to believe that they did the right thing. i think what they saw was somebody who doesn't really have much of a case to make for himself for a second term. >> steve: i heard a lot over the weekend was -- a number of my friends said he is masterful
5:48 am
with the teleprompter, but there was no teleprompter that day. it was just the barak obama who showed up to the degas its four years ago and he wasn't particularly good at that either, my friends. >> there was a "new york times" story this morning which says, barak obama doesn't really like debating and he really didn't want to debate mitt romney who he views with disdain. this is an interesting thing because if he viewed romney with disdain, why wouldn't he want to debate him? obviously he could swat him like a fly. and at the views him with disdain, that's a very bad attitude to go into against somebody who before the debates, was maybe three points down from you. now today, gallup says the race is tied. the battle ground poll says that among very likely voters, romney is ahead 52-46. that's 85% of those polled in that poll was before the debate, before the debate. so we don't actually know what the results are of the debate fully. >> steve: more bounce to come.
5:49 am
john, always a pleasure. >> thank you. >> steve: good writer. straight ahead, a major medical breakthrough. new plan to help stop cancer in its tracks and it's already working. we're going to tell you and talk to the doctor who is behind it after the break. >> pete: first let's check in with our pal, bill hemmer. what's going on at the top of the hour? >> hope you had a great weekend. good morning to you. we have new numbers this morning that show the modes in mitt's favor. all kinds of data and great guest, brit humans looks at them. when the day mitt romney makes a foreign policy speech, house republicans hold a hearing this week that might tell us an awful lot about the security matter in libya, we'll have all that that for you on monday as we kick it off in ten minutes here on "america's newsroom" [ male announcer ] when these come together,
5:50 am
and these come together, one thing you can depend on is that these will come together. delicious and wholesome. some combinations were just meant to be. tomato soup from campbell's. it's amazing what soup can do.
5:51 am
5:52 am
5:53 am
>> gretchen: according to the american cancer society, about 577,000 americans are expected to die of cancer this year. that's more than 1500 people a day. our next guest is trying to get that number down by putting treatment on a super highway, a new system will accelerate the time in which doctors receive information to best treat cancer patients. here now to explain is world renowned medical doctor philanthropist and founder of in the works llc. good to see you. >> good morning. >> gretchen: please explain this super computer system to us, what is it? >> i think one of the problems we have in health care, chronic disease, including cancer, is the ability for the doctor to get information in real time and we have such data overload. so the idea now to take advantage of the human genome currently takes 11 weeks to actually get information. but that's after the treatment has begun. so imagine if, in fact, how could we ever hope to get better
5:54 am
results and overcome inappropriate care if we don't have the right care before treatment begins? so we've built a super computer and national infrastructure so we can actually do the analysis in 47 seconds. >> gretchen: 47 seconds per patient. instead of in many cases, 11 weeks. so how will this change, this innovation, how will this change the treatment for people who are getting cancer in our country and around the world? >> i think the opportunity now is to really look at cancer in a very different way in what we call the molecule lar, cellular level. so we've looked at cancer from an anatomical prospective, meaning if you have breast cancer, there's a drug you give for breast cancer. and you have lung cancer, there is a drug for lung cancer. but now we've discovered that, in fact, the moleculear pathway may be similar, meaning a patient with breast cancer could have a pathway that treated by a
5:55 am
drug that's treated in lung cancer. so the doctor at the point of care could have this information at what we call the gene level, moleculear protein level. if we did this and brought it before the treatment begins, you would have a quantifiable way of actually addressing cancer. >> gretchen: doctor, i don't have a lot of time, but i know this is such an amazing innovation of technology that can save so many lives. do you fear that some of this innovation will be leaving the united states? some people argue that obama will take away some of that. >> one of the concerns is this is a national infrastructure that's truly needed because of the real opportunity of a medical science that we developing in this country. 21st century science is truly one of the innovations that we in america really has the best in the world. we're stuck, unfortunately, with 20th century delivery of health care. this kind of national infrastructure must be developed and thankfully with our private
5:56 am
partners, we have visionary leaders such as people at intel, verizon, at and t and bank of america, who have partnered with us to actually build this super highway, as well as a super computer so we can bring this -- not only just for our cou expore world. >> gretchen: wow. what an amazing story and for people who are battling cancer, or those in the future, this is good news as far as a time line and treatment. doctor, thank you so much. >> thank you. >> gretchen: amazing. more "fox & friends" just two minutes away my name is hunter cannon.
5:57 am
5:58 am
playing sports is just my whole life. looking back, if it wasn't for shriners hospital, things would just be really, really different. i lost my leg when i was a kid. there was a time when i felt like i wasn't going to be able to walk again... it was a pretty bad accident but shriners showed me who i could be again. they turned my whole life around. they call it 'love to the rescue' and it really works.
5:59 am
hunter's life is one of nearly a million changed by donations from people like you. send your love to the rescue. donate to shriners hospitals for children today. >> steve: we hope you join us tomorrow. as you can see, we've got congressman from the great state of utah joining us to talk about how the house is going to hold hearings into the death of our ambassador in libya. >> gretchen: also mark kelly, former space shuttle astronaut who has written a children's book now. cheryl casone will talk about where you can find a job right now.
